Really good tour. Our guide spoke excellent English and was engaging and interesting. The stories behind the tunnels were great. Some of the tunnels are very narrow but well worth seeing. I’d recommend to others.
Fantastic, fun but more then an hour

A fantastic and fascinating tour in the underground of Napoli!
Our tour guide was funny and charming, the facts were so interesting and the tour was a lot of fun!
Just a word of warning, there are some tight caverns to squeeze through (but alternative routes are offered) and our tour was not like an hour 20 minutes so don't do on a really tight schedule.
Was brilliant, highly recommend!
